Welcome! When you decide to become a teacher, you are taking on the tremendous responsibility and honor of teaching young people of all ages, nationalities and levels of ability how to understand and interact with our rapidly-changing modern world.
Praxis Core tests are an assessment of basic skills and are designed to measure proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, and math. The Praxis Core tests should be taken during your first year at PSU and must be passed by meeting the current scores required by the State of New Hampshire. Students must retake and pass any portion of the Praxis Core where the minimum score has not been achieved.
Performance at or above a predetermined score (set by the NHDOE) on a nationally recognized test in the areas of reading, writing, and/or mathematics such as, but not limited to, the SAT, GRE, or ACT. Submit the Test Evaluation Request directly to the NHDOE, as outlined below.
Directions for submitting the Test Evaluation Request are posted on the Praxis Core Requirement page.
